Black Friday

So, I live in Sweden a country where we don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving. Some might, but that’s just if they have some American family or because it’s fun. But in general it’s not a holiday here. But, everywhere you look there is a Black Friday sale. I don’t even know how many Black Friday adverts I’ve seen today or gotten an email about. Some are from american stores like Forever 21. Other are from Swedish stores that I know for sure don’t exist anywhere else. It’s all about the hype I guess…

An ordinary Tuesday

Woke up super early today! Before 6AM and came in to work around 7. Been busy all morning and I can’t wait to come home. I’m decorating my house for Christmas and New Years. Also I’m reorganizing a bit in my bedroom. Can’t wait to finish it all. It’s taking a little longer than expected considering I’m never here for the weekend when I would actually have some free time. I’m home after 6PM every day. So I only have a few hours to do things around the house!

Weekends are too short!

I spent the weekend with a lot of my favourite people.

Friday around 3PM I left work and drove about two hours to meet up with my sister, her BF and a friend. We started off with a little bit of shopping and then dinner. Sushi! You guys know I love sushi. After dinner we had about two hours until the movie so we went to a cafe and got some hot chocolate. All of a sudden, out of nowhere B and G, two friends I haven’t seen in a really long time showed up and sat down with us. Catching up was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see them again. After that we went and saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I absolutely loved it. I liked the first movie, but loved the second one…soooo good. By the time I walked in to my mom and dads house it was almost midnight.

Saturday started very early. I woke up at 7AM and med up with Ada at 7.30. We took a short walk together before she had to head to work. Very nice catching up with her as well. I went back home and sat with mom and dad for a while, while they had coffee. Then I went to the car wash and got my baby clean. Picked up my sister och went to mom and dad’s again for breakfast. Got ready and then went shopping. Picked up a few things I might show you in a haul. After shopping we headed to Oskarshamn, a town of the east coast of Sweden. It was my aunts 60th birthday. We arrived there around 3PM I think. First coffee and then a late lunch before a ton of chill and playing with the kids. Did my little cousins make up for a performance she was doing that evening. She’s 10 so it was very little and light, with a white eyeshadow. Sister did her hair. We went to the venue around 7pm. All of us but my dad and uncle. Old men, you know. LOL

There was a party after and we ended up staying after 11PM, lots of dancing and fun with the family. We requested a few songs for my aunt and the band, who were really good, shouted her out. She was embarrassed and wanted to go home but also said it was a great and memorable birthday! I’m happy she had fun.

Sunday we woke up pretty early around 8.30, the kids had football practice and left around 9.15. My cousin, her husband and I just sat around the table and talked. Around 11 the rest of the family showed up and we had some coffee and dessert before we headed back home. Stopped by a small shopping mall on out way back and did some shopping. Dropped my parents and sister off and drove home. Got in around 6PM. Unpacked, took a shower, watched a movie and went to bed around 9.30.

Great but short weekend. Wish I could have spent a little more time with my family because I don’t get to see them often. They live almost 4 hours away!

NYE dress!

Although I still don’t know what I’m doing for new years eve I’ve been looking at dresses. My go-to ‘store’ for finding cute dresses is ASOS. Even though I really don’t wear dresses that often I have quite a few. And ASOS always has some nice ones.

These are a few I found that I like…

A little bit of shopping!

Yesterday I went to the mall to pick up a shirt for a DIY project that I’ll show you here on the blog in a few days. Super excited for this one.

While I was there I also picked up a few other things to try.

Another thing I picked up yesterday and that I’m really excited to try is this jumbo lip pen from H&M. I hear it’s really good. I picked up this pink color as well as a coral/orange color called Papaya Punch.

I also picked up a while eyeliner to brighten up my eyes with as well as a blush that’s really pigmented. It’s called Autumn Flower.

I’ll show you in a post next week!

Lazy Tuesday

Yesterday after I left work I went grocery shopping. When I came home I just made a sandwich, took a shower and then went to bed. I slept from 6.30PM until 2AM, had a glass of water and went back to bed. When the alarm went off at 6.40 this morning I was still tired and wanted to sleep but I got up and I was at work by 7.15.

Order has been restored.

I am following Plus Model Magazine on Facebook and they just posted a picture of this dress. It’s from Honey’s Child Boutique in St. Louis

I am literally in LOVE!

I think this dress is gorgeous and I want to wear it to my cousin’s wedding in June 2014. But, the wedding is in southern Europe and it gets really hot there in the summer. Actually even if I don’t ever wear the dress it’s so beautiful I would like to have it in my closet just to look at it from time to time!

You can buy the dress HERE
